stirring up the conversation on women in wine


Our inaugural event in Napa was a soaring success, inspiring many and motivating us to move forward with MORE. Thank you!! But we need your support to keep the conversation going. Pledges enable us to better execute the forum, provide essentials like seating, shade and toilets for the event, pay a team of women to execute the event and conduct follow-up, sponsor scholarships and more. If you want to support the next Bâtonnage Forum (and the one after that, and so on and so on), pledge your support by selecting a donation below.

Women in Wine: The Batonnage Discussion Series Class Pack

Women in Wine: The Batonnage Discussion Series Class Pack

174.00 240.00

Every Sunday in the Bâtonnage Series, we're inviting a conversation led by women-in-wine guest teachers about issues they've faced coming up in the wine industry--whether that circles around issues related to discrimination or dysfunctional professional relationships; management, leadership or authority; advocating and negotiation; how sexuality plays into professional branding and marketing; how to achieve real diversity; work/life balance; communication strategies and styles; and more... and MORE! You may have noticed these issues are not exactly unique to the wine industry... which is why everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Plus, we'll be drinking! 

Each class discussion will feature two glasses of wine selected by the guest teachers for the way that wine shaped her career and experience in wine. And 100% of the profits from each class will go to creating Bâtonnage forum scholarships. 

This Full Discussion Series Pack guarantees you a seat at the communal table for all eight classes (every Sunday at 3:00pm March 10-April 28) and reduces the per-class price from $30 down to just $21.75.

Can't commit to the full pack? Individual seats followed by standing room tickets will still be sold for each class ($30); registration opens every Sunday at 1pm for class at 3pm, and you can purchase your ticket by calling 510-686-3615 or coming into the shop. Questions? Email
